iPod Classic stuck on 0:00 and won't play songs or movies

Hi,
I have an iPod Classic 120GB that functions perfectly in every sense, except that when I try to play songs or movies, the progress bar stays on 0:00 and it won't actually play. My warranty has expired and I have tried resetting, toggling etc. Ideally I would really like to fix the problem myself, but the only suggestions I seem to find online are the 5 R's and thumping the iPod which haven't worked. Does anyone have a solution to this issue please??

Switch the hold button on and off and then press and hold the menu button as well as the middle button for a few seconds. This should reset the ipod. If it still isnt working after that you may want to try using itunes to recover the ipod. Open Itunes and then select the ipod and click restore. Make sure you have an internet connection as it may download the required files. After that it should work fine.

Cheers

Thanks very much for your suggestions guys!
Resetting doesn't work.
I have just got a new PC and have not been able to transfer my music to iTunes on the new PC yet.
If I "Hard-Reset" or restore via iTunes, am I likely to lose my music?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You will lose all the music and files on your Ipod yes. You would have to resync them to the Ipod after you have done a restore. Your Itunes library will not be affected.
